My mother told me that her Aunt Mary was an organist at the Catholic Church in Latrobe.

She was very careful about her appearance and would never answer the door if she were not perfectly attired.

I believe that Aunt Mary left my mother some money in her will because Mom said that if her brothers knew about it they would think that "she had played up to Aunt Mary" in order to be named in her will. I know Mom didn't have the opportunity to do that because I don't think she saw her Aunt Mary very many times. It's more likely that Aunt Mary being the only girl in her family of a lot of boys felt closer to my mother who also was an only girl in a family of boys. We have a picture of Aunt Mary visiting Mom in Ebensburg shortly after I was born.

I don't know for sure what her husband did for a living. I vaguely remember Mom saying he owned a jewelry store but I may have him confused with Uncle Jim Schultz whom I remember as possibly being the jeweler. Also in the Census I can't read what James did for a living. It sort of looks like carpentry but I don't think that is what it really says. It's something else that begins with a "C."
